The 2016 Renegade Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir utilizes Dijon clones 667, 114, 115, 777 as well as Pommard and was aged for 12 months in 30% new French oak prior to bottling. The wine starts off with red fruits that dominate the nose, with a touch of citrus rind. The palate is quite primary but shows notable weight and acidity. Blackberry cobbler and forest floor flavors come to mind as this works it way up to the finish. This shows wonderful elegance and potential to evolve, but will need at least another year in bottle.
